Scott's View: What the Army Birthday and Flag Day Mean to Vets

Scott's View

June is a busy time of year for so many of our members. This week, in particular, is a double-feature week. For starters, this week marks the 242nd anniversary of the United States Army which was established June 14, 1775. I am reminded of my own Army service during the Vietnam War, memories that rekindle the pride I felt serving our country. To our active duty currently in uniform and all the veterans who have served in the Army, we salute you. Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army! 

For All Americans, June 14th also represents the 240th Birthday of our flag, celebrated as Flag Day. Remember to always show your colors proudly - Old Glory is going strong! 

Finally, if you are shopping for graduates and dads - Veterans Advantage wants to help you this week with special offers: travel, computers, sporting goods, and special gifts to recognize all the special people in your life. Check us out today.

Medal of Honor Foundation Birthday Military & Veterans Life Cover Story: Recognizing Medal of Honor Recipients The Congressional Medal of Honor (MOH) dates back to the Civil War when President Lincoln and Congress created it as our nation’s highest military decoration.  A service member awarded the MOH  is recognized for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty.”  Every March 25, National Medal of Honor Day and for a week thereafter, the living recipients are recognized and celebrated for their great service to our country.
